Here’s a three step approach to Confession:

  1. Prayerfully go through this excellent “Examination of Conscience
  2. Review: How To Go To Confession
  3. Find a confessor:
    • Go to and Enter a Zip Code, City, State, Country, or Ara Code for Catholic Church locations nearest you.
    • If you still can’t find a time:  call, email, or even Facebook a priest that you are comfortable with and schedule a time to go to confession.

Now is the time, If you haven’t Confessed in over a year.

For more inspiration you can read my own witness on confession:  Experiencing the Father’s Unconditional Love from The Priest magazine.

I'm Father Michael J. Denk, a priest of the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland. I am a contributor of content to The Prodigal Father Productions, Inc., a non-profit corporation functioning in accord with the traditions and the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. The corporation and I are separate, it doesn't speak for me, the parish, or on behalf of the Diocese of Cleveland, and I do not speak for it.
